When in Doubt, Blame the French – a Detective Comics #996 Preview

Tomorrow sees the release of Detective Comics #996, featuring a Batman so distraught by the death of Leslie Thompkins and the maybe-death of Alfred Pennyworth, he’s taking out his aggression on Gotham’s mentally ill criminals as usual…

The suffering is also enough to bring Batman and Damian back together, at which point they both come to the same conclusion…

Is Ducard the answer? Or will he be yet another victim? We may learn more when Detective Comics #996 hits stores tomorrow. For now, check out the preview below.

Detective Comics #996

In the catacombs under Paris, Henri Ducard is not going to sit and wait for the death that’s coming for everyone who helped to train Batman…he’s going to wrestle it to the ground and put a bullet between its eyes! Good plan-but what if it just gets right back up? Can even Batman save him then?

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
